    Hey, what upgrades do you see in your future? A 700+ watt PSU would suit you comfortably given what you have now.

    Oh, take a look at this too: Antec PSUs Achieve Lowest Failure Rate: Study

    I have two corsair HX (650 and 750). Best cabling I've ever worked with.

    You can't add one? How come? It's not lack of power, no connectors maybe?

    IDK. My HDD works when I put it in my External enclosure. I think my PSU is having trouble cause of not enough connectors. I do have to split them and my Radeon has two 6 pin connectors and my PSU does not so I have had to split them.

    Thanks for the recommendation!

    Well, I am seeing possibly moving from my ABS Monolize http://www.overclock3d.net/reviews/cases_cooling/a_case_monolize_atx_full_tower_case/1

    To something a little bit smaller and less heavy. Great Case but takes up too much space.
    Also looking to up my RAM from 4GB. Upgrade my HDD as well.

    Nice PSU, downside is 119 is alittle high for me in terms of price for PSU. Im looking to up my RAM and Case too. So I don't want to drop a G on it all. How are the one's I found?

    personally i lean for the earthwatts i have a 380, 430, and 650 all running strong oldest [380] is 4-5 years old, 430 is 3-4 years old and the 650 is about 2 now, so i am a bit prejudiced towards antec.

    Corsair all the way. Look at my rig, i have put my psu thru many changes....680i mobo with a q6600 overclocked and two geforce 8800GT's in SLI, two extra hdd. And now i have what i have and this psu is still running strong. The next one i get will be Corsair for sure. Question for you tho, whats your budget?
